Thank you for your response, but I was not able to use an app manifest as I had no access to the source code. I've now solved the problem. Please refer to my response to Richard Deeming's reply if you'd like to know how I did it. Thanks again.
Anyone out there with some experience on network file transfers with Windows?
On my Windows Xp, Windows 7, Windows 10 machines I have scripts that build release folders for Windows CE and Windows Embedded Compact 7. In the past, I stayed on my local VM - Windows Xp, and all was well. Due to progress, I have to push files from my Windows Xp VM to either a shared drive on the desktop (same machine), a network drive or a new Windows 10 laptop.
The folders are shared between machines, so I expect I could copy and paste, or run a DOS script. But every transfer drops important OS files - like hive files for the registry.
I have a work around - zip up the dir, copy to where it needs to go, and expand, but really?
Edit: so, thinking I would work around things, I zipped up my release folders on Xp, coped the zip file to my Win7 machine and then pulled it to my Windows 10 laptop that will do the final build. No registry files.
It's all on local machines
Is there a setting I don't know about?

A code signing application I have developed can be downloaded for free using this link. It allows code signing using a .pfx certificate file with minimum hassle. Hope you enjoy it. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.
If you are running all of that stuff on your machine first thing you have to make sure is creating a recovery point or setting up the backup for your data and files. Windows 10 is installing like an addition to your current system, Windows 8.1 and it's not rewriting whole system data from the scratch.
I think you will not have any problems. I updated my windows from 8 to 10. The first time a year ago Windows 10 was working very bad and I have hung the computer and went back to a previous version of Windows. After half a year, I decided to update Windows to version 10 again. And now it works fine and I'm very happy. of course up to you.
Take a backup, then do the upgrade. Process will tell you what you need to re-install.
Secondly, having tried Windows 10 since its early days I am among those who recommend performing a clean install is the best way to upgrade your systems, just to your curiosity, Microsoft happens to allow you to use your product keys that you got with Windows 7 and 8, 8.1. The edition of Windows 10 is considered based on the key's edition.
So, in my opinion, performing a clean install is one of the best ways to upgrade machine.
Will I be able to run all the existing developed software without any major manual setting?
I run all sorts of software from development, to virtualization, to graphics, to animation and all the way to games. Yes they work pretty well. Is question is about one specific software, check their documentation for supported platforms.

you will be able to run the existing developed software even though your windows will most probably need some type of protection just in case it will download any infectious things like diseases that will make your laptop or tablet play up.
